I’ll be taking the day off along with most of my fellow Americans to eat, drink, and celebrate our freedom and independence. Happy holiday to those of you who celebrate. And for those who don’t, as well as everyone else, here’s an open thread discussion question for you: when do you feel the most independent? For me, it’s usually when I’m traveling by myself, whether that’s by air, foot, car, bike, subway, or bus. There’s just something about commuting — getting from one point to another — on my own that always feeds my sense of independence and reminds me of my capabilities.
See you back here tomorrow morning for Friday Shortcuts!
